Hillary Clinton Rips Into Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) Over Benghazi Attack: VIDEO

Johnson_clinton

Hillary Clinton boiled over at a line of questioning from Republican Senator Ron Johnson during hearings about the Benghazi attack

Said Johnson: "Again, we were misled there was supposedly protests and something spraying out of that, assault spraying out of that. That was easily ascertained that was not the fact and the american people could have known that within days and didn’t know that."

Blasted Clinton: "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans! Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans?! What difference at this point does it make?! It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again."

At another point in the hearing, Clinton got choked up talking about receiving the bodies of the four slain State Department employees:

"I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at Andrews...I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I feel ya Hillary. I feel like I have to scream "WHAT DIFFERENCE AT THIS POINT DOES IT MAKE?!?!!" 5 times a day to a**holes getting in the way at my job too.

  3. Exactly. This disgusting pigs love that people are dead. What a perfect excuse to play politics. Any reasonable person can admit that you wouldn't know all the details right away and that some of the initial thoughts may turn out to be incorrect. But scream and cry that that is a cover up, use those deaths so you can score some donations and votes.

  4. The only *difference* any of this makes is that Republicans are now trying to damage Clinton/2016 instead of Obama/2012.

  5. There you go. The problem with the likes of Johnson, who took part in cover-ups, spewed hatred and lies in the name of their god, in additional to all around bullsh*t in their everyday life, tend to start seeing liars and bullsh*tters everywhere they look.

    He wouldn't see the truth even if it bit him on the a**, hit him on the head, and had Jesus delivered it to him on a platinum platter.

  6. On the second vid:

    I totally agree; the USA has been the best supporter of peace and progress that the world has ever known.
    Hillary is proud of that and rightly so.

    Many of us criticise the USA for various policies, but I, for one would not like to live in a world that did not have the USA as a strong international force bringing malfactors to justice and assisting allies and the developing world.
    What a great President she will make.

  7. Amazing. Not that Hillary wasn't already spectacular, but my sense is that her scary health issues have made her stronger. I am already on the Hillary 2016 train.

  8. What is wrong with the Republicans?! They just want to present themselves as "smart", "patriotic", but when they open their mouths, they sound and look stupid.

  9. Hillary 2016!!! She is ready for the fight and is supremely qualified.

  10. Curious that the GOP wasn't even slightly concerned when George "asleep at the wheel" Bush allowed 3000 Americans to be murdered on his watch. The republicans know no shame.

  13. When a politician has nothing to lose, when they are not seriously interested in winning a vote, they start to get honest and forthright. They are nobel and righteous.

  14. What a waste of time

  15. Shouldn't George Bush have been grilled this way after 9/11?

  16. Most Democrats do not understand Benghazi because they don't want to dig deeply into a major Administrative failure and would like to just assume that everything went okay (except for the murders).

  17. @GR8GUYCA.....BINGO!

  18. Most Republicans don't give a damn about Benghazi except as a way to bash the current administration. I don't remember hearings like this and with this posturing after any of the seven times one of our embassies was attacked under Bush, let alone after 9/11. Democrats tend to understand that the world is not a simple place, and in some areas it's dangerous to be an American, plain and simple. The GOP is still lost in a black and white TV view of the world they formed in the 1950s, never really understanding that "Father Knows Best" was fiction, not a documentary, and John Wayne was an actor who faked it, not the real thing.

  19. she would have been an amazing president
    so much better than spineless, appeasing, compromising bo
    to paraphrase james carville
    if she gave bo one of her balls
    they'd each have two
    woman is amazing
    and she looks great with the glasses
